American Indian Community
The City of Minneapolis has a large and tribally diverse American Indian community. The community is an internationally recognized hub of arts, culture, and activism that promotes our strong values, traditions and spirituality.
There is an official Memorandum of Understanding between the American Indian community and the City of Minneapolis to promote a shared interest in the overall health, well-being, socio-economic growth, and cultural vitality of the American Indian Community. The community and the City work in partnership to create sustainable solutions to critical issues currently facing the urban American Indian population and ensure the needs and priorities of the community are being heard and addressed.
Connecting with the community
